A celebrity with 10 kids has been caught up in a very unlikely situation.
35 year old professional boxer and father-of-ten Yusaf Mack, whose xrated p.orn video was put on a gay subscription website claims that he was drugged and does not remember having s.ex with two men but admits to agreeing to take part in the porn film and getting paid $4,500 for it.Mack who has fought several world champions and is known as the 'Mack Attack', has chosen to speak out and defend his heterosexuality after he was identified as one of the men in the explicit Yusaf Mack Video, which appears to have been online since
'My whole life, I've been what they call a whoremonger. I love females,' Mack told Philly.com.
'The only time I touch a man is when I'm in the ring fighting.'Mack who is engaged to a woman admits that he agreed to take part in a p.orno because he needed the money.
Sometime in June, Mack boarded a train to New York City and made his way to an address in the Bronx. Once inside the apartment where the filming was to take place, he noticed a number of n.aked women walking around.
"I think, 'It's about to go down.' I needed a drink or something," He said. "They gave me a pill and a shot of vodka. I took the pill down with the vodka."
The next thing he can recall is being on a train at 30th Street Station and someone telling him to wake up.
"I don't remember getting on the train," he said.
But Mack did later notice that he had $4,500 tucked inside his pocket.
He pretty much forgot about the encounter until Oct. 16, when he was on his way to his grandmother's Gold Coast Lounge, at 40th Street and Lancaster Avenue, and noticed people behaving strangely toward him.
"I'm wondering why everybody is walking past me and not speaking to me," Mack told me.
One of his friends pulled him aside and told him about the video snippet, in which Mack's doing all kinds of things and Mack denied that it was him.
"I don't know what y'all are talking about," he told people. "That ain't me. "I don't remember that."
Eventually his friends convinced him it was indeed him on the Yusaf Mack Video. Mack said he had never actually seen it. But he does remember agreeing to do p.orn and getting on a train to New York City.
Still a ferocious fighter, he wants to go after whoever it was that got him into this predicament, but he said his memory is fuzzy.
A Facebook page that he met his porn contact through is inaccessible because he forgot his password. He has since established another page.
Mack retired in 2014 after losing a six-round bout against Cory Cummings of Newark, N.J., according to thaboxingvoice.com.
Since then, he's tried to forge ahead with his life. He said his goal was to be "a better father to my kids." His children range in age from 3 to 21. Some of them have had questions about the video.
"I'm just hurt right now," he said. "I can't really sleep at night, but I'm getting by. . . . Everybody thinks I'm going to hurt myself. I've got to stay strong for my children."
"All my real friends who really know me, know I like females," Mack added. "I'm still me. You've got to realize that the ones that are not really talking to me are the ones that probably have skeletons in their closets."
Echo Hawk, who manages another boxer's career, said Mack should seize this moment in the spotlight.
"I think he should take advantage of the situation at hand . . . love him or hate him, people are gonna pay to see him so he will get the last laugh," she wrote on Facebook. "I am a Yusaf Mack fan and I will continue to support his career! We all fall as humans, and sometimes as professionals - I'd hope for the same mercy should I ever fall from what the world sees as 'grace.'
Looks like Yusaf Mack has really got himself in a jam.If he is 100% that is what happened,he should go to the authorities and report,as that could be termed as a form of r.ape.I have not seen the Yusaf Mack Video and don't particularly wanna see it, but i am sure for those who have seen it,it should be easy to tell if this guy in the video is drugged out or on his senses.Also ,what did Yusuf do in the video? Was there penetration? If there was ,then he is lying his ass off! Excuse the pun,because if he was violated,he surely would have been able to tell the next day.Like Keith Sweat once sang,something just ain't right!
